Light Has Come Into the World

As told by John Barros:

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
(John 3:19-20)

The darkness of this world sure was present today. It is so dark when you see 16-year-old late-term girls walking around out back deep into their labor and delivery abortions with their mom. When over 20 ladies are there to kill their babies. When the clients are cursing dear Saints like Tara, Bonnie, and Philip, who come down in upper-90s weather to offer themselves as a sacrifice to these people. Yes, it can be very dark indeed.

But that Light in John 3:19 will not be harnessed! The Lord Jesus moved in a mighty way here today. Far too much today to share anywhere near to all of what He did. We saw Him turn the hearts of seven young ladies today. Arleetha, Tanicka, and Brianna chose life and prayed with us. There were also four turn-aways that friends or boyfriends wouldn’t let us talk with.

Brianna is 18 years old and came with her boyfriend in a truck. Her mother came in her own car. The kids went in right away, saying they had to. I was able to speak quite a bit with her mother. She went in to be with the kids. As she went in I said something weird. I said, “I believe the beginning of next year we will be going to get a coffee and celebrating God’s goodness in saving your grandson.” She laughed and frankly I did as well. After everyone was packed inside, I began to preach. When I was almost finished,┬áBrianna, her boyfriend, and mother came out. I asked whether they had chosen life. She said “Yes!” through teary eyes. Her mother looked at me and said, “I don’t know what happened.” We shared about the Light, God’s sovereignty and mercy. We all had a prayer meeting on the sidewalk. It was wonderful. As her mother walked to her car she turned back said “Thank you,” gave me a hug, and said “We will be having that coffee.” It was awesome.

Then we had visits from two different couples. Both had one thing in common and do not know each other. My friend Luke and his wife brought their little baby Abel by. They had been at the courthouse finalizing their adoption of Abel that had been handled by Life For Kids. Abel is so awesome and has no idea how blessed he is to have such wonderful, loving parents. Then later Angel and Consuela, who have chosen life for their baby and are going to bless another couple with him or her, came by to update us on how their adoption process is going through Life For Kids.

 

There was much darkness here today but it is no match for the Light!.
